* In OrsonScottCard's ''The Devil in Velvet'', the protagonist, Nicholas, makes a deal with the Devil to return in time to 18th century England to stop a murder most foul by, in essence, leaping INTO and taking over control of the body of his ancient ancestor. But the old boy is still there, trying to get out of the box, and whenever Nicholas is extremely stressed or emotional, Old Nick jumps out, seizes control of his body, and does dastardly things until our hero can regain control.

* In ''[[ForgottenRealms Return of the Archwizards]]'' Galaeron Nihmedu overused the [[ToxicPhlebotinum shadow magic]] despite his mentor's warning. This puts him into the "shadow crisis" -- that is, now his "shadow self" got a foothold in him and it sucks to be Galaeron very much, in several ways at once. May be the best reply (and counterpart) to EnemyWithout of Literature/EarthseaTrilogy ever.

* ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'': Ichigo's powers are manifested via two spirits who can be communicated with inside his "Inner World". Initially, the Inner Hollow manifested as his most base instincts that he has to constantly war with to improve his Shinigami and Hollow power. Whenever he is close to death, the Inner Hollow threatens to, and eventually successfully, take control of his body and mind. [[spoiler:Old Man Zangetsu initially appeared as the advisor that controlled the Inner Hollow, but is really Ichigo's Quincy power. He confesses his destiny was to eventually kill Ichigo but he has come to deeply care for Ichigo instead.]]

* Ichigo from ''Manga/{{Bleach}}'' regained tremendous [[TheGrimReaper Shinigami]] powers, but the method he used resulted in the awakening of a dark personality, an "Inner Hollow" within his consciousness. Throughout the series a recurring theme is having to battle this inner demon for control of his powers made stronger by their dual existence. [[spoiler:Ichigo gains even greater power when he finally accepts that his Inner Hollow isn't an enemy but just another part of him.]]
** Ichigo later meets other Shinigami who, through a slightly different process, ended up in the same situation. They trained him in how to properly overcome and control his inner demon, but he ended up leaving before the training was complete.
** [[spoiler:Subverted in the case of Zangetsu's other half, which reflects the piece of Yhwach's soul attached to Ichigo's. That side of Zangetsu was apparently supposed to kill Ichigo if he continued down the Shinigami path, and could've possibly wound up becoming this trope had things gone differently. But Ichigo's influence caused him a change of heart, and he became part of Ichigo's strength instead.]]
